Not suggestive of breast cancer
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The mild itching of the nipples or a red spot near the nipple due to a blocked gland are not worrisome findings. These are not suggestive of breast cancer.
The symptoms are more likely to be due to eczema
Other possibilities include a reaction to a new material, an allergy
to some detergent and the jog bra syndrome. The latter causes the nipples to dry and the whole itch-scratch cycle starts.
The following measures will help:
a. Only wear cotton innerwear
b. You can apply Nipcare cream immediately over the area after cleansing it properly with warm water and savlon
c. Also use Benadryl
syrup 2 tsp twice daily for 5 days to stop the itching.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
